More To Life has pledged to help continue the inspiring humanitarian service given by Patti and LaVell Edwards. Last December we adopted their favorite charity, the Boys & Girls Club of Utah County and surprised over 100 children and their families with a Christmas party that included games, crafts, food and plenty of fun.
We partnered with members of the BYU football team and coaches and the staff of the Boys & Girls Club to make the event possible. The children had provided the club staff with a Christmas “wish list” of gifts that they would hope to receive. With the lists in hand, dozens of BYU football players went shopping to help fulfill the children’s Christmas dreams. At the event, the gifts were secretly handed over to the children’s parents so that the parents could give them to the children at a time of their choosing.
That night, More To Life and dozens of partners provided activities, games and food that entertained the club’s members and their families for hours. It is our hope to make this an annual event as well as to continue to find other ways to support the Utah County Boys & Girls Club and perpetuate the legacy of Patti & LaVell’s work with this important group of children.
